Is everybody in Hollywood up for the Doctor Strange role? In a list that seems to be getting longer by the day, Ryan Gosling is the latest actor rumored to be up to paly the Master of the Mystic Arts. And the rumor doesn’t come from just anywhere, it comes from one of the leading entertainment press sites.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Gosling recently met with Marvel Studios to discuss playing the title role in a Doctor Strange movie.
